Mitchell&Ness Swingman Lakers Magic J MNLL18175
The Los Angeles Lakers had something to prove going into the 1984-85 season. After losing to the Sixers in the '83 finals and the Celtics in the '84 finals, they wanted to show that Showtime was still alive in LA. Magic Johnson did his part, as usual, finishing the regular season averaging 18.3 points and 12.6 assists per game. The finals were a rematch of the 1984 finals as the Lakers faced their east coast rivals, the Boston Celtics, in the championship. This time Showtime prevailed, and the Lakers captured title number 9 when they defeated Boston in six games..
